In 1893, the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Trust Company, Arthur Stillwell (of KCS fame) president, owned stock with a market value of $10,000 of the East Independence Land and Improvement Company.

The company also owned $49,000 market value stock of the Kansas City and Independence Airline as well as $51,975 in bonds of the same railroad.

The East Independence Land & Improvement Company was formed on March 7, 1887. It was dissolved at some point but have not been able to find out when.

Chillicothe Constitution-Tribune, Chillicothe, Mo, May 22, 1953

This was a "Bad Day in Blackrock" for many kids, like myself, who were already hooked on TV, even if it was only B&W and was only one station.

Kansas City Times, November 15, 1957.

Fall 1957 was the year the "new" William Chrisman high school opened with only two grades, 11th and 12th.

The auditorium was not opened until the year after I left. A memorial plaque dedicated to Leslie Curtis was placed inside the school on the outer wall of the auditorium.

He also attended McCoy school.

Sikeston Standard, Sikeston, Mo, October 24, 1924.

This surely had to have been the field that is now a practice field immediately east of the replacement high school. I attended many football games there sitting on the cement stepped seats. A "play by play" announcer who could read the referee's hand signals would keep the spectators advised as to what was happening during a game. There was only one loud speaker but I am sure the people sitting in the metal and board visitors section bleachers on the other side of the field could hear it.

The distance from the MoPac standard gauge station was two miles. I wonder if they had to walk that distance? Nice of MoPac to hold their return train for them.

Naughty Girls.

Kansas City Times, February 12, 1958.

I was a junior when this happened. It was a hush, hush sort of thing and I don't believe I ever found out who was involved. I never knew any girls who worked on the square.
